@IntlCrimCourt Broke?! Hobbyist level #Zaporizhzhia #FalseFlag. The cameraman was waiting for explosions that came from #inside the apartments to the #outside. He dared to go and take close-up pictures because he knew that no more #explosives had been #planted.

Merseyside Pensioners, Trade Unionists, Anti-fascist and faith groups gather outside the Suites Hotel in Knowsley as a show of support and solidarity for the #Refugees temporarily housed there. The peaceful gathering was in response to threats from far right and fascist groups.
Contrary to some media reports those supporting the refugees DID NOT clash with the police or cause any disturbance. #Merseyside has a proud record of welcoming those fleeing from oppression. Fascists are not welcome. #RefugeesWelcome
Fascists have been trying to intimidate the #Refugees & stir up hatred. Our determination to welcome these vulnerable people will continue despite the hostile environment created by the government. #RefugeesWelcome #ToriesUnfitToGovern #Racism is not welcome! @UnitedWeStandSN

The eternal dangers of the @HeGetsUs campaign. A thread:

You've, no doubt, seen the commercials that I'm referring to. Simple, well produced, and appealing to the culture. If you're anything like me, however, after watching one of their ads, you feel a little dirty. 1/
You may feel like you're trying to be persuaded into a perception of Christ that is incomplete, surface-level, and not quite accurate. In my experience, that feeling is a result of the Spirit working inside you. He's waving his hands in a cautionary plea to be on guard. 2/
They are impressive in their marketing. Using catchy hashtags like #activists, #refugee, #inclusive, #relationships, #judgement, #justice, etc. Browsing through their website you're presented with write-ups that relate back to the hashtags. It's very well done. 3/

What a vibrant panel on the power of storytelling!

How do we encourage our communities to share their lived experiences?

🧵 Just a few of the valuable insights from our panelists #NIIC202

@ErikaAndiola @megasuniverse @HaitianBridge @adhikaar @theYoungCenter @npnewamericans Image
@ErikaAndiola @megasuniverse @HaitianBridge @adhikaar @theYoungCenter @npnewamericans @NIICImmigrant Sharing our stories can be stressful, even stigmatizing for certain communities. According to our speakers, movement champs who all shared their own stories, this is 🗝️:

💥 Building trust
💥 Fostering a safe space
💥 Practicing consent
💥 Transferring leadership

📸: @gcirtweets Image
Sharing our stories can also be part of the #Healing process, according to ASAP member Daniel Paz, who was separated from his young daughter at the border under Trump's #FamilySeparation policy, and has since become a national advocate for separated families and #AsylumSeekers. Image

Thank you Seyoum Teshome for shining light in darkness! When a tree is very small, you can remove it using your hands without any challenges. But you are going to need something much bigger to cut down a grown big tree! Don’t wait until something becomes a national issue! 1/
It is only in #Ethiopia where refugees are allowed to leave the camps and live wherever they like, own weapons, and even getting recruited by terrorist organizations to fight the gov’t that’s taking care of them!

30 years ago, I was a writer during the 1st Intifada and met a 10y old boy named Nizar who lost his arm, a foot, and a leg from an IDF bomb that hit his home in #Gaza. I'd wrote a lot of stories about injured kids in Palestine and wanted very much to do more than just write.
I was in my early 20s and had just graduated from Kent State in Ohio, my hometown. I couldn't keep writing about injured kids and then do nothing to help them. A year earlier, I sent the first two injured kids (from Hebron) to Ohio for free care. He was also a triple amputee.
After Mansour returned home, I met Nizar in #Gaza. I thought I could do the same for him that I did for Mansour - get him new legs to walk again and maybe something more: A better life than a refugee camp in Gaza. I didn't really know what I was doing, but I did it anyway.

1. Thread: Astonishing circular issued by Cox’s Bazar District Judge, Mohammed Ismail, re #Rohingya refugees. Circular criminalises entire #refugee population & effectively urges against bail. Changes are specific for Rohingyas alone.…
2. District Judge Mohammed Ismail accuses #Rohingya in the camps of “indulging in various heinous crimes including drug trade, murder, disappearance, rape, human trafficking, robbery, kidnapping.”
3. Circular states that common people around the camps live a “life of fear” and that “law and order forces are struggling to maintain law and order or suppress crime in the #Rohingya camps.”

NEW RESEARCH: Can refugees transform their lives with large cash transfers of $1000? And can it work in the context of the dual shocks caused by aid cuts and the COVID-19 pandemic? (1/10) 🧵

Proud to be 1 of 72 @LibDemLords voting to give asylum seekers the right to work in the UK if their claim has not been resolved within 6 months. We won in @UKHouseofLords by just 1 vote!… #Refugees #RefugeesWelcome #RefugeesNeedHelp
But we lost by 5 votes an amendment from the Bishop of Manchester prevent “offshoring” unless safeguards protecting human rights, protection against persecution, and threats to physical safety are in place. Judge for yourself how he Peers voted:… #Refugee

1. As images of people desperately trying to evacuate #Ukraine reach us daily and given the unprecedented response to their plight, it has come to light that not every #refugee is treated equally.
2. Investigations have revealed not only that non-Ukrainian refugees have been prevented from crossing into the #EU, facing delays & uncertainty over their legal status, but that an unspecified number are kept in EU-funded detention centers as cities are being attacked.
3. 'The wife of one detainee who was released last week said there was no air-raid shelter for detainees and that guards ran down the street when the siren sounded'.…

This 12(!) car #train arrived at #budapestnyugati from #záhony at the #Ukrainian #border this afternoon, it was a special train for the #Ukrainianrefugees fleeing the #WARINUKRAINE

And I have to say that I am positively surprised by how much help is happening in Eastern Europe!
And to put it in context, the "normal" train back to Zahony had 5 cars...
This is at the #keleti station in Budapest, normally this hall is completely empty, now it full with stands and people who #HelpUkrainianRefugees

I went to look at Eurostat, BAMF and Home Office statistics for positive decisions on asylum cases for Germany and the UK 2015-2020 and added in also refugee resettlement quotas 1/2
#Refugee and humanitarian protection granted in Germany and UK, 2015-2020 (including #refugeeresettlement)
fyi @PeterStefanovi2
or if you want to get an overall picture, here the total for 2015-2020, i have also separated the refugee resettlement quotas, yes, the UK has taken marginally more resettled refugees, but one has to be really disingenuous to forget to mention how quotas are a tiny fraction...

THREAD 🧵: Why we need an #AfghanAdjustmentAct ASAP

After our #Afghan withdrawal, over 76,000 Afghans were airlifted out of #Afghanistan to the U.S, including Special Immigrant Visa (SIV)-eligible individuals, their family members, and other Afghans who aided the U.S., as well as those who would qualify for #refugee status.
Most of these individuals have been or will be admitted to the U.S. under parole, a process that affords temporary lawful presence in the United States for “urgent humanitarian reasons.”

Key word– ❗️TEMPORARY❗️

🧵 I'm seeing a lot of disturbing tweets and frankly false info on #refugee #law. First, let's be clear. There will be refugees from #Ukraine. We should all protect them. A refugee is a refugee. An imperial power has invaded.
2. I am a huge critic of the international and domestic protections afforded to all kinds of migrants. I'll be the first to critique a policy, #law, program when I see it unfairly excludes, labels, violates rights. This is not time to pit #refugee communities against each other.
3. In Canada, so far, there is no resettlement program specific to Ukrainians. They have started announcing measures like lifting visa requirements, extending existing visas and permits, processing applications already in the system. More will come. It should. #refugee #law
